Incredible Bible Resource

The International Bible Society has just come out with a work called The Books of the Bible. I got my copy Friday after work.

It’s amazing.

They’ve removed all the chapter and verse numbers and reformatted the text to reflect the way it was written. Letters have breaks at the natural places where the author changes topics, not arbitrary places that a monk put in as verses.

Books are arranged totally differently! More along the line of the time they were written. So 1 Thessolonians, being Paul’s first epistle, is first. And the Gospels are mixed in with the New Testament writings.

I’ve read more of the Bible for sheer pleasure reading in the past 2 days than I’ve read in the last 2 months. Large portions of Isaiah. (It makes SO much more sense without the verse numbers!) Large portions of Deuteronomy and Matthew. And entire epistles like both Thessolonians and James.

This is the best $9 (+ shipping) I’ve spent in a long time.

For more information, go to the IBS The Books of the Bible site.
